A chipped or broken tooth is more than a cosmetic issue; it can be painful and destructive to your oral health. A chipped tooth can cause harm to the oral structures surrounding the tooth, like nerves, soft tissue, and more.
If you do chip or crack your tooth, your Edmond, OK dentist has several ways to treat it depending on the severity of the impact. A small chip can likely be fixed in one dental office visit, while a severe injury may require a more complicated dental procedure.
Chipped Tooth Repair in Edmond, OK
Dental Bonding: A minor chip to your enamel can be easily fixed using composite resin. Dr. Michael Chandler can shade a tooth-colored filling to match your existing teeth before shaping it to the affected area. This painless cosmetic procedure can be completed in just one dental office visit.
Dental Veneers: If you have chipped or cracked your tooth, your dentist in Edmond OK can make it look flawless again through porcelain veneers. These beautiful dental restorations are thin, translucent shells that cover your tooth's front surface to hide any smile flaws.
Dental Crown: We may recommend a dental crown if your tooth needs protection and preservation. Dental crowns cover your entire tooth to the gum. If your tooth is badly chipped and missing a substantial portion, we can cap it with a natural-looking dental restoration.
